Since 1965 millions of people have enjoyed discovering their motoring heritage and the social history of motoring at the National Motor Museum, Birdwood, South Australia. Originally opened by motoring enthusiasts Jack Kaines and Len Vigar, the Museum has developed over the decades to become the largest collection of historic and classic vehicles in the country. The museum joined the History Trust of South Australia in 1982, and in 1998 the new Pavilion was opened.

As an international centre for the collection, research, preservation, education and display of Australian road transport history, the National Motor Museum is much more than a collection of vehicles. It is a social history of the way we were, the way we are now and the way of the future.

Note: This isn't the location of the cache, just the location of the historic site.
